Blackpool striker Steve Davies to undergo operation

Steven Davies is expected to undergo an operation on an injured groin which will rule him out for the remainder of Blackpool's campaign.

Blackpool striker Steve Davies is to undergo an operation on his groin which is expected to keep him out for the remainder of the season.

The 26-year-old, who has featured 29 times for the Seasiders this season, was an unused substitute in last weekend's 3-1 loss to league leaders Leicester City.

"Steve Davies is now out for the rest of the season, probably," manager Barry Ferguson is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News. "He's got a groin problem. I don't really know the details but I know he's probably going to go in for an operation."

Ferguson is expected to delve into the loan market this month with Ricardo Fuller now the only Blackpool player capable of playing in the attacking role.
